ranunculus

my 365 personal project – new england and new orleans photographer

Thursday throwback to April … what a lovely month!  It began with an Easter parade  in New Orleans’ French Quarter, birthday celebrations with my wonderful sister, crawfish, grandgirls, and I discovered my love for ranunculus — these gorgeous blooms that resemble something between a rose and a zinnia, but grow in a wild way similar to tulips after they’ve been in water for several days.  Apparently, I love a beautiful mess.  We ended the month in New England via Birmingham, Savannah  and Hilton Head, where pansies and popcorn awaited us!  Such a fun month … enjoy!

personal project | 365 | maine and new orleans photographer

March.

March Madness.  It comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.  Well, it definitely came in like a lion as I was scheduled for a flight from New Orleans to Portland on March 2, only to have it cancelled because of a Nor’Easter.  L O T S of snow.  So I flew out two days later, was here for two weeks, and guess what … two more Nor’Easters hit.  Yowza!

So here’s my merry month of snow, beach, crawfish, scrabble, knitting, nashville and the Grand Ole Opry, and just basic madness … in pictures.  #playingcatchup

signature chefs event

March of Dimes Signature Chefs Event | portland maine family photographer

For the second year in a row, I’ve had the pleasure of participating in some pre-work for the March of Dimes Signature Chefs Event, taking place this Thursday (September 28) at DiMillos in this wonderful foodie city of Portland, Maine.

In a nutshell, this is a food station frenzy meets silent auction event!  First, more than a dozen chefs from some of Portland’s best restaurants will offer their own culinary creation — it was so delicious last year, and will be equally as delectable this year!  Who’s participating?  Think Union, Sur Lie, Baharat, Honey Paw, Ice It! Bakery, Mami, Union Kitchen, RiRas and so many more!!  Secondly, there is an online auction (click here to see what’s on the block and to bid NOW!) as well as a silent auction taking place at the event on Thursday night.   Yours truly is donating a family lifestyle session that includes a beautiful album — great for a family night of board games and popcorn, an afternoon of baking and crafts, or your annual tree-cutting outing ending with a delicious cup of hot chocolate!  These sessions are fun for all!

My assignment, and I loved every minute of it, was to make images of the participating chefs, the families, and the children — the sweet little March of Dimes miracles — to help promote the event.  I had a ball!

For more information on this yummy night out, click here.  Buy your ticket.  Support the March of Dimes.  And then eat, eat, and eat some more!  In the meantime, meet some of the talented chefs, the grateful families and the beautiful little children who have directly benefited from the efforts of this organization.

Sailabrate good times! Newport celebration photographer

It was the middle of summer and a beautiful summer day at that.   My honey and I were on our way to Newport, Rhode Island, so that I could photograph the 10th anniversary sailabration of the RE/MAX River’s Edge office.  Our friends, Michelle Cartwright and Todd Mosher, the broker/owners of the office, hosted what was a fantastic event and they (and their staff, no doubt!) left no stone unturned!

It all began seaside and under the sunny sky with cocktails, chilled shrimp and my personal favorite, oysters on the halfshell.  Yum.    Next, the big and beautiful Aurora came sailing up to the dock, inviting all the partyers aboard for a two hour tour of Newport Harbor.  So much fun, so much beauty.

So wait, there’s more…dining under the tent was a treat, with chicken and lobster and steamers, oh my!  We laughed, we danced, we answered trivia and some won prizes.   Everyone left with a pretty little bottle of prosecco dressed in ribbon and banners.  Such a fantastic little detail that captured the true spirit of the celebration.

It was a great event as evidenced by the smiles…..  here is a collection of my favorite images.
